Instead of this, shall I handle this 404 issue through robots.txt. I could disallow all those web pages that are having 404 errors. Is it the better option - I request you to clarify.

Thanks in advance.

Someone said in this forum that Directory Posting would help. But the visible results are not determined.

Paypal is the best to go. It can be integrated quite easily. It accepts Master, Visa, American Express and Discover Card in addition to PayPal.

Submitting the same content to various articles directories are not considered as duplicate by google. Only one link would be taken by Google even with multiple posting. The purpose of posting to different article directories is that you can get a good traffic if your content is unique and attractive.

I am handling a wordpress website for a client. It has around 4000 '404 errors'. I am thinking of redirecting it to the home page. But if I redirect, Google should not think that I am duplicating (though I am not doing). The other option is that I can request Google not to crawl the web pages that are '404 errors'. This '404 error' is due to the forum, which was linked to the website.

I request forum members valid suggestion / advice on solving this issue.

I would suggest 'Stick to the basics'. Contents play a major role in on site optimization.

BigCommerce Website would be a huge plus. It is very much user friendly and SEO friendly. It starts with $30 per month. It is very simple to use; yet have powerful features.

Allison2009

Forums related to the website would be highly helpful both in link building and in gaining traffic to your website.

Allison2009

Press Release Submissions and Social Bookmarking would do a world of good.

I agree that length does not matter. Long Tail Keywords are little easier to get SERP ranking. Also, the conversion rate would be higher than the short keywords, though there are limited traffic. Conversion is the main difference between short and long.

BigCommerce has all the features that are needed for an ecommerce business. Also, it comes with all the SEO features. Of course it comes with money.

Allison2009

It is not advisable to have a one word keyword. Even if you get traffic, you won't be able to get the much needed conversion. You can use some Long Tail Keyword. though the traffic would be less, the conversion rate would be much higher.

[QUOTE=cscgal;1627575]Each time an article on your site ranks highly for a particular keyword, regularly create new content about similar keyword phrases.[/QUOTE]

But it is the Shopping Website. It has very good contents. Also, contents (products) are added on a regular basis.

I am able to get the competitive keywords on the 1st page of Google. But I find it very difficult to retain the keyword in the same position for sometime (two months). I am doing only White Hat SEO.

I want some tips on retaining my Keyword in Google at least for two to three months. I request the members to give some useful tips, instead of generic reply like link building from quality websites, etc.

Thanks in advance.

Allison2009

Thanks all for making me understand the concept. My special thanks to cscgal and Ydeveloper.

Hi,

What is a Trackback URL. What is the use of Trackback URL in bookmarking websites. What way this Trackback url help us in our SEO campaign.

I request forum members help.

Thanks in advance

I believe losing ranks are quite normal with google. To keep in the same place or improve the ranking, you need to build quality links after on-page optimization. Use of automated software is not at all advisable. Just try some Press Releases. They would certainly help in bringing back to your position.

Allison2009

You can use Press Releases for getting the Keyword Ranking faster.

Allison2009

Most probably, it is due to spamming. The same url might have been posted many times.

Allison2009

I don't know why people are bothered about Page Rank. I don't think it is a criteria for SERP.

Allison2009

Deep Linking nothing but the linking of your internal pages of your products or services.

Allison2009

Create compelling contents with good English. Have your website easily navigable. Create Title Tag. Write a good Meta Description. As far as offsite optimization goes, submit articles and videos.

Allison2009

If you are newly starting, it is best to target low ranking and long tail keywords. One of the best advantages of targeting Long Tail Keywords is that most of those who search with Long Tail Keywords are those much interested in buying than others.

I believe article, press release and video release to youtube and metacafe would be highly helpful.

[QUOTE=Tiggerito;1567623]Just the home page. You may find this video from Matt Cutts (Google) very informative. It mentions site submission near the end.

Just submit once then focus on other things that will promote your website.[/QUOTE]

The link is quite useful. Thank you very much for the info.

Allison2009

It is the clickable text link, which directs you to a web page when clicked.

[QUOTE=canadafred;1385009]You might to incorporate these secondary keyphrases within your content. Introduce them in top level pages and put some emphasis on them in lower level web pages to back them up. Use a lot of synonymous keyphrases, abrreviations, altered verbs/prefixes/suffixes etc. to endorse your additional intelligently crafted content. This technique will harvest many more long tail phrases you may not have already considered important in your web site promotion.[/QUOTE]

Thank you and I really appreciate your advice. But then I am working on online shopping carts.

Hi,

I have analyzed and collected a few Long Tail Keywords. Is there any special technique available to promote these long tail keywords other than the usual way of doing things like Articles, Forums, etc.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Hi,

We wish to have a separate website and integrate it with Amazon. My doubt is whether we can have a Zen Cart Website and integrate it with Amazon Store.

Expect to have replies from the community.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

We run three Online Shopping Carts. All the Shopping Carts are run on Zen Cart.

For all the three Shopping Carts, we use only one PAYPAL Account. PayPal Pro is configured in all the three. There is no problem with two Shopping Carts. We face problem with One Shopping Cart.

The problem is that, whenever the customer makes an order the order is not stored either in the front end (the admin panel) or in the backend (the database). This does not happen regularly. It happens randomly. Also we used a developer to look into it and he has also corrected the issue at that time. But it pokes it ugly head again. We lose orders and customers too. In this particular site, where there is the issue, also uses USPS for Shipping.

We are really clueless as to what is happening to the system. Hope to find some valuable answers to rectify this.

I request your response.

Thanks in Advance
